Group Overview: Merry Meet and Welcome!
I have named this group Willow Grove. The Willow Tree has Celtic associations with the Moon and Magick. A Grove is a sacred place in the woods surrounded by trees. Druids use the term Grove instead of Coven, and a Grove is also a Wiccan term for an "Outer Court" study group, or an informal coven.
Update: Now that Willow Grove has been established successfully for two full years now, we have students who have met the requirements for Initiation. This means Willow Grove is no longer a new coven...it is established and formed with a structured Tradition. We have a full Coven membership, yet we are open to new members. We will continue to be a teaching and training coven.
ALL members upon acceptance will be expected to share in the work and responsibilities of maintaining the coven.
The Energies of any group, new or established, are determined by the participating members. Both involvement and non-involvement affects the group as a whole. This is why it can be hard to be accepted by an established group.
If you are not accepted to be part of this coven, please do not be offended. This only means this specific group is probably not the right one for you; there is most likely another one that will be a better fit.
I have found that I harmonize best with those Witches from Christian families who have retain their personal relationship with the Divine (ie: God and Jesus Christ) even if they have "grown out of" Christianity as a religion. Like my Wiccan Elders before me, I do NOT require conversion of your previous faith, beliefs, and practices.
The lessons given will be guidelines that will largely be self-directed. What you learn will be determined by what kind of effort you chose to put forth on your own outside of the coven meetings.
I would very much like to meet you if you:
* are hoping to be part of a group working towards the greater good for all.
* wish to make a positive and constructive difference in your life and in the lives of others.
* know your unique contributions will be respected, honored, and appreciated.
*are seeking to be part of that something "more" outside of your own personal spiritual practice.
Please do NOT contact me if:
* You only want one on one instruction as an "apprentice" seeking a mentor.
* You are only wanting to learn about Wicca and join a Coven for your own personal benefit and/or to develop personal power.
* You insist on being taught the Dark Side of Magic, the Dark Goddess, etc.
* you want to start your own coven
The following are FORBIDDEN when meeting as a coven:
* drug use/ being under the influence
* skyclad worship
* illegal and unsafe activities
* being disrespectful
Some things to know beforehand:
*cigarette smoking - I am allergic to cigarette smoke. If you can be respectful and limit your smoking to outside, we do have a few members who smoke. Just the smell on your clothes can trigger an asthmatic response, so please be careful if you choose to smoke.
* alcohol - we do include the ritual use of alcoholic beverages (like wine) at certain times. We do have members under the age of 21, so remember this is NOT a party! Keep use for religious purposes only within the legal limits that would not put young adults at risk. (For example: a small glass of wine as a toast in ceremony.)
*Though an adult coven, we do have members who are raising their children as Wiccan, and there will be times when their families and children will be joining us. It is important to be tolerant of other members, no matter how young or old they are.
I make these guidelines to be clear as possible so that there is no misunderstanding when I am contacted about what to expect. I have been doing this a long time, and I am more interested in quality and not quantity. This will make it a positive experience for everyone involved!
Please contact me for more information.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to meeting you!
